Treasure!

I have made other things too. Please allow me to impress myself onto your retina (not like that): Bird necklace (polymer clay and nail varnish) Flowers (crochet, beads) Hanging Indian style charm (polymer clay, beads)   Cushion (liberty fabric)   And that’s what I’ve done recently. 🙂 Adieu!

Blockbusters Patchwork Blanket

Hello lovely people! Sorry for the lull between posts, it’s just that……I’m moving house! Aaaaaah! It is the school holidays too, so I am crocheting a massive throw for our house. Not to put over our house….for the sofa…..YOU KNOW WHAT I MEANT! N.B. Blockbusters was a terrible 80’s quiz show in the UK. It […]

I’ve been away, but I’ve been busy!

Hi hi hi hi! It seems like such a long time since I’ve posted. I’ve always been too tired to do so, even though I do peruse everyone else’s posts on WordPress to see what people are doing! Well, I got a new teaching job (permanent! woo hoo!) at a lovely new school; I went […]

Saturday 1st February AKA day off that wasn’t a day off (in pictures)

Hello. Today is my day off. I am meant to relax. I’ve been working hard all week. BUT OH NO I’m having to do loads of stuff for the Vintage Fair next week. I am enjoying preparing for it. Just not with a headache. Here is my day in pictures.     Everything is a […]

Art Nouveau Bag

Holla! Ain’t no stoppin’ me. Copywritten, so don’t copy me. I have been making like a crazy lady for upcoming vintage fair thingy AND planning on going to Paris for Sam’s birthday. You know I love all things French: Eric Cantona, Sebastien Tellier, Brie, the phrase ‘ca suffit!’ (that’s enough), Brigitte Bardot, Coco Chanel, Pain […]

Crochet calms me down and I have made another hat.

I have had a very long and busy day. But I’m not stressed. This is partly due to having a two hour nap when I got home from work (note to self: must petition the government to make it compulsory for all people to hibernate in January) and partly due to crocheting on my journey […]

It’s a first – I’m making things and teaching AT THE SAME TIME

It’s been an immense week. First of all, I met this guy: http://www.thesumoguy.com/ who is one of the most brilliant and intelligent people I have ever met (he also works with Manchester City FC and Sir Clive Wooward – that’s how good he is), then the kids came back to school, which was lovely – I missed […]

Happy New Year! Here’s some exciting new things that I have made!

Happy new year! New beginnings, fresh starts and exciting new projects to contemplate! Here are some finished works from previous posts (fan necklaces) and new projects (brooches, pendants and books). I will be selling these over in my Etsy shop soon. The weather is awful at the moment. It’s dark and stormy outside – but […]

Chinese Fan Necklaces

The mother of my lovely boyfriend, Sam, went on tour in November with her orchestra. She picked up some beautifully designed origami papers, which I have used for the fans, so I have been spending time with these, a laminator, a sewing machine and some beads. Super. They aren’t all totally finished yet – only the […]

Vintage style winter hat and scarf

Hello! I haven’t posted because I’m teaching again – which of course means that I spend most of my time trying to do the best for my little charges. BUT I have had time to make these accessories. I love the 60’s. I love chic style – think Audrey Hepburn, Edie Sedgwick, Brigitte Bardot, Jane […]
